In 2002, when she was just fourteen years old, Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped at knifepoint by a pedofile from her home in Utah. She endured nine months of being shackled, raped, starved, and threatened by her kidnappers, Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee, before she was rescued and reunited with her family.
Her book, "Where There's Hope: Healing, Moving Forward, and Never Giving Up", is an inspiring read and is available through booksellers everywhere.
